7.2 million to support virtuous municipalities. Over 1 million in Andria – AndriaLive.it

The Regional Council has approved the allocation of 7.2 million euros from the ecotax fund, to support municipalities that achieved a result of more than 65% for separate waste collection in 2023. The municipality of Andria is among these since in 2023 the waste separation stood at 75.27%.
Thanks to this differentiated percentage, Andria is the municipality in Puglia that benefits from the most money, as much as €1,070,323.43
For the Environment Department of the Puglia Region, this is a provision that «contributes to supporting virtuous Municipalities for separate waste collection, to investing resources in interventions for the environmental protection and safeguarding of the territory, for the hygienic-health protection of people, but also aimed at the development of environmental control and monitoring systems and the integrated management of urban waste.

The recovery of these sums will also make it possible to reduce the financial pressure on municipalities and citizens, after the annulment, by ruling of the Council of State, of the 2021 resolution of the Regulatory Authority for Energy, Networks and the Environment due to an increase of TARI tariffs”.

The resources, in fact, can be included in the economic and financial plans (PEF) of the Municipalities, in order to contain the effects on the TARI determined by the ruling of the Council of State which canceled the tariffs envisaged by ARERA and implemented by the Regions, thus determining a significant increase in the costs borne by the Municipalities and therefore by the citizens for 2022 and 2023 for the transfer of waste to landfill.

To this regional contribution approved by the regional council yesterday will be added the initiatives planned by AGER for a multi-year installment of the extra costs determined by the CDS ruling.

The next step, at an advanced stage of development, will be that of defining the minimum systems to which the tariff methodology adopted by ARERA will be applied, with effects starting from 2024.
